Forward officials announce furniture sale

Wednesday, April 16, 2014, 4:01 a.m.

Forward Township has office furniture it can offer to help clear the way for demolition of its former municipal building.

At Monday's board of supervisors meeting, Supervisor Dave Magiske talked about the building known as well as the old Axleton School along Bunola River Road at Liggett Avenue near the bridge into Monongahela.

Old chairs and desks still are there from the years when the township used the building. He said anyone interested can call the township's current administration building and ask to see it.

“There's too much in there for insurance to cover,” secretary Karen Stetor said after the meeting.

The two-story building was acquired by the township in 1969. It sits on a 7,211-square-foot lot.

According to the Allegheny County real estate website it has an assessed value of $242,700 including $220,400 for the building.
